Season and Commitment: Our practice schedule starts in January, usually 1-2 practices per week. These are mandatory practices unless your son is playing another winter sport and his winter events directly overlap with lacrosse practices. Note: We encourage our players to be multi-sport athletes and will work with you to accommodate schedules during the Winter season.

The official Spring season runs April 1 through May 19, 2 practices per week. Tournament play will consist of single and multiple day events up to 2.5 hours away on Saturdays and/or Sunday. We try to minimize overnight stays as much as possible, but there is usually at least one each season.

In order to provide the most cohesive teams and provide the best experience, we need those that want to play AW travel lacrosse to make a full commitment to the program and schedule.
